Funny you should say this about danios since most tetras are labelled very active.
I have 9 CPDs in my 10g currently and for about half a year now. Definitely not true schooling fish and really not that active. They hide a lot. Great fish for small aquariums.
Good rule of thumb to generalize fish by broad name (all Danios act the same, etc) but it isn't a 10 out of 10 correlation.
Personally if I were you, I'd make a fancy Shell Dwelling Cichlid tank. Be a change of pace from your planted 75, interesting behavior, Cichlids always have great personality, and definitely very doable.
